‘Dryad Saddle’ First annual polypore to appear on dead hardwoods in spring (also fruits on occasion in summer and fall). Causes heartwood white rot. Fan-shaped, scaly cap surface, large whithish, angular pores, blackish lateral stem. Odor of water-melon rind. Considered mediocre.

Soft outer edge of young fruiting body is best for cooking. Cook thin slices 4-5 minutes or longer.
